Custom Wedding Welcome Bags for Texas Fall Wedding

I loved designing these custom wedding welcome bags for Hillary and Tanner. They had an October Boho-Vibe Fall wedding in Texas. They needed 100 bags, so it was quite the labor of love! We loved finding the perfect floral washi tape, fonts and design to compliment their wedding. We included His + Her Picks, Custom Labeled Water Bottles and of course, a Hangover Kit.

Feel free to reach out if interested in having us design your custom wedding bags. Lindsay@thegiftinsider.com

TGI Tips: For your parents, get a favorite family photo turned into a keep-forever piece of art (even sweeter, if it’s a group gift from you and your siblings.) For your anniversary, turn a favorite wedding photo into a sentimental piece you can hang in your forever home. We even love the idea of honoring a beloved fur baby with a custom oil painting. We love the possibilities, we love how easy it is and we love that’s it’s affordable even for those of us without a crazy art budget.

Miles’ Camp Themed 1st Birthday Party

Oh did I have a blast planning Miles’ first birthday party! I decided on a Camp Theme, “Camp Miles” and we held it at our home, which I felt would make it special and intimate and allow me lots of creative freedom.

I went with a color scheme of greens, pops of gold, and black and white plaid to give off a campy vibe. I incorporated greenery, vines and wood signs into every nook and craney of our home.  I loved added DIY touches everywhere I could. I wanted each kid to feel special and the party to be totally unique to Miles.

We had Music Man Dave come to play camp songs, the The Meanie Weanie Hot Dog Truck was dishing out amazing gourmet hot dogs (the mac & cheese was a huge hit!) and we had Suzy from Lumi Photography there to help us capture all of the special moments.

Miles’ 1st Birthday Cake Smash

I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since my little man was born. I’m still in awe that we created this sweet, silly and happy little human and we get to keep him forever. I have all the feels as I’ve been looking through photos and watching videos of our journey this past year. It’s been the hardest, most rewarding, most incredible year and I can’t believe how fast it flew.

We did a fun cake smash photoshoot a little before his actual birthday to celebrate this stage.  He got pretty into the cake smash part of it, and the photos turned out hilarious. Thanks to Stefanie Russo Photography for these priceless shots and Love and Buttercream for the delicious smash cake.

and now, for a few non-cake covered shots.

 

It was a special day, for a special boy. Check back in a few weeks for shots from Miles’ first birthday party, Camp Miles!
